Water Tower condo neighbors sue over kitchen rehab
Downstairs neighbors are suing to stop remodeling work on a pair of Water Tower Place condominiums that used to be part of Oprah Winfrey’s home, alleging that the rehabbers are using an inferior plumbing material likely to burst and damage the condo below. Donald and Lisa Casey, who live in a three-bedroom condominium on the 55th floor of the Michigan Avenue tower, allege that the rehab has included a type of plumbing normally prohibited in Chicago high-rises.
